Santa Clara, CA, Judrillne 29, 2015. Cirexx International announced today that they have acquired and installed an Excellon HS-2L Intelli-Drill. This equipment affords the user greater accuracy in CNC drilling location, depth and diameter. The addition is a part of Cirexx’s continuing commitment to producing the most advanced Printed Circuit Boards in as quick, reliable and cost-effective method as possible.

Philipp Menges, Cirexx President & CEO commented, “We continue to see PCB features get tighter and smaller and this equipment will help us to remain at the leading edge of technical capabilities in our industry.”

The HS-2L has two high speed 180K RPM spindles and can accommodate “large panel drilling – up to 28” X 32”. It also has high speed linear motors for table movement which interprets into a more efficient drilling process. Depth Control Drilling and Drill Diameter Verification are standard features. The CNC-7 Controller allows for networking to Cirexx’s highly automated CAM/Engineering process.

The key feature of the Intelli-Drill is the Auto-Focus, Auto-Zoom CCD Camera. The camera automatically aligns the table to etched targets and drills holes with amazing positional accuracy. Menges added, “We chose Excellon for their reputation in PCB drilling equipment and the superior service that they have provided us with other equipment in the past.”
